Three major streams in the area converge into one, providing year round water, and the regional climate in this mountainous area is ideally suited to the project. It´s simply stunning with the forest lined mountains providing the perfect background to one oft he most beautiful botanical gardens in Thailand.
Covering an area of about 227 hectares, the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden was opened in 1993 for the conservation of Thai flora. The garden also provides facilities for students and researchers of all levels and collaborative projects have been established with several institutions and universities throughout the country. H.M. Queen Sirikit gave the royal permission for the garden to be named after her in 1994.
